Travel to cities, mountains and beaches in Croatia and Slovenia
This adventure bounds from the Gothic monuments of Split, through the pristine scenery of Plitvice Lakes National Park and ancient streets of Old Town Zadar, then on to the island of Pag. After leaving the Dalmatian coastline, cross into Slovenia to discover the enchanting surrounds of Bled. This jam-packed journey offers lush forest hikes, breathtaking landscapes, medieval architecture and scrumptious food along with a good taste of the ancient Croatian and Slovenian culture.
Explore beautiful Split, a haven of relaxation and culture where tradition, modernity and a variety of European influences come together. Unwind with a walk along the waterfront promenade and explore the impressive ruins of Diocletian's Palace
Feel the rich heritage of the former capital of Dalmatia with each step on the marble streets of Zadar, and taste it in the incredible food
Discover why Croatia is on every foodie’s must-visit list. Stop by Pag Island, meet producers, and taste local specialties like paški sir (Pag cheese)
Stroll through Plitvice Lakes National Park, marvelling at luminous lakes and waterfalls that seem to have been sketched by an artist
Step back in time in the impressive Roman arena of Pula, once the sight of bloodthirsty gladiatorial contests and a spectacular sight as the sun sets
The Slovenian town of Bled is a joy to explore. An active paradise, the beautiful town lies on a stunning lake at the edge of the Julian Alps and its island church appears to have come straight out of a fairytale
As there are cobblestones in many European cities, it's recommended that you leave any wheelie bags/cases at home and bring a backpack instead. The Croatian coast is also very hilly and mountainous, so many steps are a feature of the landscape. You will have to be able to easily lift your luggage and carry it up and down stairs and inclines, so packing light is recommended. Also, stone streets become very slippery when wet. Some people may find Croatia's topography very demanding.
Summer temperatures can be extreme in many of the regions visited (over 40°C), which can be uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat and drink plenty of water. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.
As accommodation on this trip is twin share, single travellers will share a room with another traveller of the same sex. This trip is a great opportunity to get to know other like-minded people, so embrace it while you can. However, if you’d prefer not to share, a single room supplement is available at an additional charge. Please ask your travel consultant for more details. Also, hotels in Europe often don't have double beds, but rather two single beds that can be pushed together.

We were surprised with the diversity of the landscape and environment of Croatia. Very laid back but strong culture, lots of history but not the crowds of Italy ( except at Plitvice Lakes).
